Privacy, Security, Encryption Oh boy, what do we make of this? We haven't paid that much attention to the whole thing as of yet, but with a recent public statement on why they do what they do, I think it's about time to address this thing. Yes, Lulz Security, the hacking group (or whatever they are) that's been causing quite a bit of amok on the web lately.

1. These guys are idiots. Most of them get caught, and they won't be an exception. Anonymous is slowly getting whittled away, and lulz will eventually fall, too. Most criminals aren't smart enough to keep their mouths shut.

2. Wikileaks did what they did for one reason; Wikileaks. I love the romanticisation of these a--holes (Ass-ange-holes?) What Wikileaks did wasn't only wrong, it was non-productive. What did we learn - that the Saudis fear Iran? Wow, that really broke ground. I think from the whole Wikileaks caper what we really learned is that Julian Assange likes to have sex with women while they sleep (all of them, maybe?)

Please stop overromanticising a bunch of arrogant, egotistical know-it-alls who didn't reveal anything really newsworthy.
